La Baie Osaka, Michelin Star French Restaurant in Ritz Carlton Hotel


La Baie Osaka is the signature French restaurant at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Stepping into the Ritz Carlton in Osaka was like going into another world. The place is so European and opulent. The common areas are dimly lit and wood panelled. The restaurant La Baie fits into the overall scheme. The one Michelin Star restaurant is formal and grand. Perhaps that is why the dress code is “sophisticated casual attire” and “sophisticated elegant attire” for lunch and dinner respectively. But looking beyond appearances, La Baie is a friendly place. It was one of the few highly rated restaurants in Osaka (that we came across) that would accept English online reservation and did not require any credit card guarantee.

Soufflé Duxton Hill Singapore, new French restaurant specialising in soufflé


Soufflé Duxton Hill is a new French restaurant that specialises in soufflés. With six savoury soufflés and eight types of sweet soufflés on the menu, anyone can satisfy his craving for the fluffy French baked egg dish here. Souffle is run by Delicae Hospitality Management Group (“DHM Group”) which used to operate the Sabio Tapas Bar from the same premises. We had brunch there recently and tried seven types of soufflé.
